  1. Hi Sayeri,

    Prosenjit is a wonderful actor. Probably the best in bengali cinema at the moment. I have seen Chokher Bali. He is amazing in it. He gets into the skin of his character and does full justice to the role.

    Thanks for sharing, have a great day. 🙂

  2. He’s such a veteran and a legend. Have seen Chokher Bali. Great actor. Will check more out. I’m a film buff

  3. Can you believe it? I have not seen any. But after going to through your post and reading the comments, I’m clearly missing out on some fantastic cinema. Definitely streaming a couple of these during the weekend.
